Covid-19: Latest Government Guidance - England

Posted on 2021-12-02

The new precautionary measures announced by the Prime Minister came into effect earlier this week for England to protect against the new Omicron variant.


This is a reminder that all LDWA activities in England must adhere to current local and national Government guidance. The LDWA is not imposing any further rules:



  • Face coverings are legally required indoors in shops and on public transport services

  • Turn away people with Covid-19 symptoms


For challenge events:



  • Risk Assessments are required.

  • Indoor locations used for challenge events must have appropriate cleaning, hygiene and ventilation in place.

  • Consider displaying the NHS QR code so that walkers can check in.

  • Consider using the NHS Covid pass to reduce transmission at the venue.

  • Put in place a communications plan to share Covid-19 measures in place for the event. This should include an attendee code of behaviour (don't attend if you show symptoms!)

  • Work closely with partners - local authorities, transport operators and safety advisory groups.
